Deformable Registration to Create Cytoarchitectonic Probability Maps for Functional Analysis of Primary Auditory Cortex
A novel method is presented for analyzing fMRI data, which relies on probabilistic estimates of microanatomically defined regions in individual fMRI volunteers. Postmortem structural and cytoarchitectonic information from ...
Using Economic Models to Tune Resource Allocations in Database Management Systems
Resource allocation in a database management system (DBMS) is a performance management process in which an autonomic DBMS makes resource allocation decisions based on properties like workload business importance. We propose ...
Explicating a Biological Basis for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
In the absence of clinical markers for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), research to find a biological basis for it is still open. Many data-mining techniques have been widely employed to analyze biomedical data describing ...
Issues in Performance Evaluation of Mathematical Notation Recognition Systems
Performance evaluation of document recognition systems is a difficult and practically-important problem. In this thesis, we contribute to the understanding of performance evaluation by studying some issues that arise in ...
Generation of Concurrency Controls using Discrete-Event Systems
The development of controls for the execution of concurrent code is non-trivial. This work shows how existing discrete-event system (DES) theory can be successfully applied to this problem. From code without concurrency ...
Language Implementation by Source Transformation
Compilation involves transforming a high level language source program into an equivalent assembly or machine language program. Programming language implementation can therefore be viewed as a source to source transformation ...
